    Phoronix: Linux 4.19 Kernel Benchmarks On The Raspberry Pi

    With the Raspberry Pi Foundation recently having begun rolling out a Linux 4.19-based kernel to Raspberry Pi boards, here are some benchmarks looking at the performance of two Raspberry Pi systems with the new Linux 4.19 kernel compared to its previous 4.14 kernel.

    Lol, nevermind.

      What article were you reading?

        Golang's HTTP performance was also slightly lower on the new kernel.
        [strike]That should be slightly higher, unless my eyes are cheated by some spell [/strike]
        Edit: They were, lower is better on this one, my bad

          Orange pi boards are cheaper and beyond rasperry pi boards. Used laptops cost the same as orange/rasperry pi systems. Android tv boxes can run Debian and they include cases and power units. For embedded development arduino and mbed boards suit better.

            Just because it's newer doesn't mean it's faster.

              The last time the Orange Pi and similar boards were tested here, most ran some ancient kernel (some even 3.xx!). Some of these kernels are full of binary blobs with no hope of much support and updating (Yeah Tegra, looking at you!). Have any of these "Raspberry killers" reached a state, where you can expect to run newer upstream kernels etc. in a few years time?

                My Amlogic S912 TVbox can run latest mainline kernels. The Amlogic meson project is for Amlogic Socs.

                  I last updated my Raspbian in late 2017 (probably november/dezember, but I can't remembere the kernel version). Will I get relevant performance improvements updating it to 4.19 or will it be like this benchmark which shows equal to lower performance?

                    You'll likely see little difference unless you do something that hits one of the few areas where performance has regressed. What you will get is improved secruity--which may or may not matter in your application.

                    But, on a side note, if you're worried about performance, using a raspberry pi board was not the way to go in the first place.
